Artistic quests lead Antonella Zazzera to get interested in the power of signs and tracks ; she discovers the importance of light in the definition of space and shape. Her will to translate this discovery into a more dynamic language urges her towards threedimensionality and allowed her to find her main thread : copper. Antonella Zazzera restlessly hand-weaves the frame of her sculptures, trying to feel, rather instinctively and blindly seeking the starting point for harmonization where the copper wire is going to insert, to create a knot and to set off again in another direction. Her sculpture work is composed of a mesh of yarns that are arranged in a very precise rite, composing a metallic grid that catches light and on which light reflects. The artist plays with colours and shapes that vary, also on the thickness of yarns and on vibrations caused by the increase in the number of lines, thus creating a high-tension sculpture. A work of the artist is presented until 28 June at the exhibition TISSAGE TRESSAGE Quand la sculpture défile à Paris at Espace Monte-Christo – Fondation Villa Datris.
The gallery Jeanne Bucher Jaeger is today one of the few Modern and Contemporary gallery in Europe in activity for more than 90 years. Established by Jeanne Bucher in 1925, the gallery was set in an avant-garde atmosphere, exhibiting contemporary artists of its time. Under the direction of Jean-François Jaeger from 1947, the gallery exhibited the great abstract artists of the 1950s and 1960s. In 2004, Véronique Jaeger became the gallery’s General Director and opened an additional space in the Marais, dedicated to the promotion of contemporary artists. The gallery is now developed around two axes : frequent loans to leading international museum institutions and sales of major works in the secondary market, as well as discovering and promoting new international artists such as Michael Biberstein, Miguel Branco, Dani Karavan, Rui Moreira, Jean-Paul Philippe, Hanns Schimansky, Susumu Shingu, Paul Wallach, Yang Jiechang, Zarina.
